5.0 out of 5 stars Dont judge a book by its typewriting, 10 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Mountain Buckskin: A Working Manual for Dry-Scrape Braintan (Paperback)
I was a little taken back when I opened this book to read it. The text looks like it has come straight off a type writer on 30 year old paper.

Once I got used to the text style and the bunched together writing I soon realised that this book is actually very good.
It certainly shows you how to make buckskin using the 'dry scrape method'.
I am yet to try dry scraping but when I do ill have this book by my side.

What is also nice is that clothing and accessory design gets more coverage than most books which typically just leave you with a piece of buckskin saying 'and now you could make trousers, a top or a bag... go and work out how to do it for yourself'

A good book if you intend to learn dry scrap brain tanning which is also useful (and an interesting read) if like me, you are a wet scraper.
